Ben and Lindsay have been making blues and rock music around Washington State, in tiny taverns and big blues festivals, as Shoot Jake since 2010. In 2012 they recorded and released their self titled EP. In the time since, they’ve played a bunch of shows, gone through a bunch of bassists, met tons of great people, tried to drink all the beer, and had a really good time. In 2015, St. Louis native Dustin Rademacher joined the band to record their debut album, “Get Real.” It was released on December 16th, 2016.
Direct support for Tommy Castro, Too Slim and the Tail Draggers & the IBC winning Wired! Band. The Untapped Blues Festival, Sunbanks Music Festival, Case of the Blues, The Snohomish Taste of Music, The Yakima Blues Bash, Chinook Fest and the Seattle Blues Invasion (among other festivals, podcasts and radio shows).

“Brett “Bad Blood” Benton
– Alabama-born and Southern-raised, Brett “Bad Blood” Benton recently left the city of Pensacola, FL to perform his hill country and delta style of blues around the country. Now living in in the Pacific Northwest, this 25-year-old artist has shared his soulful and southern style from Richmond, VA to Austin, TX and made it all the way up to Seattle, WA to make the same mark. Under his belt he can claim playing in a quickly-growing list of places ranging from Edgar Allen Poe’s historic neighborhood alongside Richmond’s own The Bush League, historic theaters, county fairs, countless restaurants and music venues (some of his favorites also include good ole fashioned house parties, front porches, graveyards and in the deep of the woods). He also lists among his accomplishments being featured as Artist of the Month in the Pensacola-based Po10tial Magazine, being featured two months in a row in the WA Blues Society’s Bluesletter (June AND July, mailed to approx 4,000 people each), and a live interview/performance on Everett-based KSER Radio’s Saturday
night program “Audio Indigo” and “Mighty Mouth Blues” Radio, to name a few.”
